Spring Forward By Cynthia Brian

A Message from our Founder, Cynthia Brian
“Without libraries what have we? We have no past and no future.”
― Ray Bradbury


Spring Fling
Congratulations to all of the volunteers and supporters of Be the Star You Are!® as the charity has once again been honored as a TOP NON PROFIT by Guidestar and Great Non Profits, an accolade that Be the Star You Are!® has received every year since the awards have been given. Be the Star You Are® has been offering services to our communities, country, and world since 1999. We are small yet mighty! Thank you to everyone who believes in our mission of empowering women, families, and youth through increased literacy, positive media messages, and tools for living.  Read more here .


On May 13th, Be the Star You Are!® will be participating in the 11th Annual Moraga Community Faire. Thank you to Michael Verbrugge who is once again sponsoring our booth. Make sure to visit his web site for your remodeling needs. Gratitude to our two best selling authors, Diana Zimmerman and Brooks Olbrys who have donated books that BTSYA will give to kids and young adults. Additional sponsorships are available. Please email me for details, Cynthia@BetheStarYouAre.org
Our volunteers are our greatest asset so we have decided to profile a couple of our stars each month as they write in their own words how volunteering with Be the Star You Are!® has impacted their lives.
With the April 15 tax day nearing, remember you can still make tax deductible donations to Be the Star You Are!® I much prefer to donate to this charity where I know the money is making a difference to increase literacy and provide positive media and message entertainment than to give my extra dollars to Uncle Sam. Donate by check to PO Box 376, Moraga, Ca. 94556 or directly on-line through PAYPAL where 100% benefits the charity with no fees attached.
Make sure to visit our website to find out more about our events and projects. Join my power party every Wednesday from 4-5pm PT LIVE on our radio broadcast StarStyle®-Be the Star You Are!® bringing you the information and inspiration to thrive. Check out more at our site.  

Read a book this week. Visit a library or bookstore. Our motto is “Read, lead, succeed. To be a leader, you must be a reader!”
Wishing you a beautiful vernal equinox. Spring has sprung and nature is reborn in all its glory!

Communicating Across Generations
by Karen Kitchel
Communication is a simple process of using words, sounds or behaviors to exchange information.  This process, however, can be challenging when those words and behaviors mean different things to different people.
Age differences don’t need to translate into more difficult communication.  Bridging age gaps does  often involve a bit more effort and investment in the relationship—at least at the beginning. Why? People are products of their history, their environment and all of their experiences, so people from different generations often have very different life experiences that shape how they think, what they value, and what drives them.
However, we shouldn’t assume that because people are a certain age, they will act a certain way. Think about the 70 year old computer whiz who designs websites and blogs, the 25 year old who is not computer literate or the 55 year old who regularly runs marathons.  What’s important is to be open to various communication styles and make a real effort to get to know individuals.  To do that, try asking what challenges they are facing, since we all have challenges!  You may be surprised by some of the things you have in common and want to know more about each other’s different experiences.
Some Tips:
1. Recognize  that  individuals each have their own personality, experiences, beliefs and goals.    Labeling everyone as the same doesn’t work.
2. The stories you can tell. Genuine interest in another’s life unlocks conversation like no other key.  Sharing tales creates common ground.  Sharing lessons learned from past mistakes  can connect  the older generations with the younger generations.
3.  Social media can help or hurt.  Today’s constant technological advances can cause struggles. However, social media can also present the perfect opportunity for the younger generation to mentor its elders on using technologies and understanding social media.  Likewise, the older generations can mentor younger generations on the importance of face-to-face interaction and interpersonal skills critical to success.  In-person meetings benefit everyone.
4.  Ask questions.  Open-ended questions (those which can’t be answered with a yes or no) allow for more information to flow and result in more productive conversations.  Everyone needs to feel safe to question and know he’s being heard.
Remember that generational differences can inspire greatness.  And in the words of someone who invented a character that hopefully will be remembered by many generations:
“If I were given the opportunity to present a gift to the next generation, it would be the ability for each individual to learn to laugh at himself.”- Charles Schulz

Spotlight on Volunteer Brigitte Jia
Radio Host and Reporter, In her own Words
“I love BTSYA! I joined in 9th grade and the organization has become a big part of my life. I’m proud to be part of Be The Star! You Are and I personally think that this organization is unique in its message and goal of literacy and positive media. BTSYA has brought me so many opportunities. I’ve interviewed best-selling authors, TV show stars, anime voice actors, artists, and even a numerologist, a cryptologist and video game creator on Express Yourself, our teen outreach service radio. I talk with other teens every week on the radio, discussing our views on current events and societal values. Through BTSYA I get to host and volunteer at local events and see how books and positive media impact the citizens in my town, and I’ve been able to give back to my community in an innovative way that really matters.
BTSYA is made up of purely positive energy. Being part of it has helped me pull negativity away from my life so well that I’ve even been able to see my political views from another light; I am rather more liberal in terms of beliefs and views and when I am on Express Yourself! I interact with people who identify as conservative and they have helped me realize that at the end of the day, we all hold the same human-ness inside and we all wish to make the world a better place no matter what our political views are. I think with America’s recent political climate that this is the kind of thing that is important—positive media that reinforces the good within us and pulls us away from squabbling over who’s on what side. And I think BTSYA really accomplishes just that.
In the three years that I’ve been part of Be The Star! You Are, I feel that I’ve really grown as a person and as a volunteer. With the help of the support network BTSYA provides and under the guidance of Cynthia Brian I’ve been able to learn and find a path to the good in my everyday life. Right now, I’m improving my communication skills by finding and helping to coordinate guests for the radio show! I’ll close this review by letting everyone know that honestly Cynthia Brian is the positive force behind this positive media charity—she is absolutely wonderful and she is key to our efforts and improvement. Working under her guidance for these past three years has been incredible and she is so positive even when times are tough; I can’t claim Cynthia as my specific role model because honestly she’s so inspiring that she’s everybody’s role model!”

Gaelic Green By Cynthia Brian

Gaelic Green By Cynthia Brian


“May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and the rain fall softly on your fields. “-Irish Blessings

Although I don’t have an ounce of Irish in me, every March I get excited to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Besides the fact that the beloved rebirth of nature is officially only days away, my adoration of the Emerald Isle is deep rooted. My good fortune as a child was to be taught for eight full years by dedicated, intelligent Irish nuns, and to be mentored by Irish priests who had my best interests at heart. I danced throughout California in an Irish dance troop and one of my best friends in the world is my Irish pen pal whom I met through letters crossing the Atlantic at the age of eight. My Irish first grade teacher and I are still in constant correspondence. She always told me she kept a leprechaun in her pocket just in case she needed a trick or two. Fortunately I’ve been blessed to spend many weeks with these friends in their very green country where I’ve been officially christened an “honorary Irish woman”.

With the propensity of rain that we’ve enjoyed this past winter, our countryside is looking very much like the verdant island. As I look at the cattle grazing on the hill, I am reminded of my friend’s dairy farm in Limerick where the rich milk goes to produce Bailey’s Irish Cream. I milked those cows when I visited and was rewarded by a shower of hot manure on my hair. That was many years ago, but I’ll never forget the smell…and the laughter.

Since that time, I have always grown shamrocks, which here in America, we call oxalis a noxious weed. Nevertheless, I have a major fondness for the bright yellow or pink flowers of these shamrocks as I seek the rare four- leaf clover pattern. For each petal on the shamrock a wish of good health, good luck, and eternal happiness are bestowed. I’ll take all of the blessings and positive thoughts offered! If you are not a fan of shamrocks, plant baby tears in a shaded garden. They, too, are reminiscent of the Celtic spirit.

The good news is that spring is coming and with it an abundance of flowers and beauty. All you have to do is look around to witness the beautiful blossoms on pear and peach trees. My plums have already finished blooming and are leafing out. Rose bushes are budding. My calla lilies, daffodils, crocosimias, hyacinths, and tulips are abloom, spreading their joy and fragrance throughout the landscape.

It’s time to pull the weeds, prepare the soil, and get ready for a wonderful season of seeding and sowing.

May the luck of the Irish be with you!


Cynthia Brian’s Garden Guide for March


CUT budding branches from fruit trees to place in a vase to watch the petals open. Add a few drops of bleach to the water to prolong the blooms. A few sprigs of narcissus provide perfume to an entire room.

USE baby tears as a ground cover in shaded areas as a pretty green carpet.

CUT calla lilies to be used indoors in a vase. They will last two or more weeks as long as you replace the water regularly and add a drop of bleach or lemon juice to the water.

INVITE the wood nymphs, faeries, and leprechauns into your garden to help you with your chores by providing hiding places for these wee ones.

CLEANSE your indoor air with a container of peace lilies, also known as the sail plant.

FORAGE for wild greens including Miner’s lettuce, mustard, creek watercress, and wild strawberries. The young leaves are delicious in salads.

PULL weeds as soon as the rains terminate. Leave weeds on hillsides to prevent erosion until the end of next month.

PREPARE your soil for next month’s planting by mixing your compost into the topsoil. Don’t roto-till unless you are creating a new garden bed as you don’t want to disturb the existing ecosystem that surely contains many worms.

FERTILIZE lawns, trees, and annuals with a high-nitrogen organic fertilizer. It’s best to fertilize your lawns when you know it’s going to rain to assure a deep feeding. The winter rains have definitely stripped our soil of nutrients making it necessary to boost the nutrition now. Remember to mow without the bag as the lawn cuttings are rich in nourishment for the grass.

TIME to re-seed or sod lawns. My preferred grass seeds are purchased from Pearl’s Premium. www.PearlsPremium.com . I also really like mixing in clover as it is self-fertilizing and always green. You do have to like having tiny white or pink flowers in your grass.

NET areas where you are seeding, both in gardens or grasss. The birds will be voracious eaters if you don’t protect your seedlings.

WEAR green on March 17th  and pin a clover on your collar or the banshees will be coming for you.

BUY packets of seeds for vegetables, vines, herbs, and flowers from companies you trust. Look for heirloom varieties and non-GMO. There are many companies to choose from including Renee’s Garden, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, Plant Delights Nursery, White Flower Farm, Select Seeds, and many others.

CONTINUE to collect fallen camellias until the end of the blooming season. Do not let the dying or dead flowers remain on the ground or you’ll jeopardize the mother plant.

PRE-ORDER my forthcoming garden book, Growing with the Goddess Gardener, Book I in the Garden Shorts Series. All pre-orders will receive extra goodies such as heirloom seeds, bookmarks, and more. Email me for details, Cynthia@GoddessGardener.com. 25% of the proceeds benefit the 501c3 Be the Star You Are!® charity.

RELEASE your perfection attitude in the garden. Take your cues from the chaos that is nature. Let it go and let it grow!

SING a lullaby, dream of castles, kiss the Blarney Stone, and celebrate the vernal equinox with an Irish jig.

CONGRATULATIONS to Andy and Wendy Scheck for ten years of stellar publishing of the Lamorinda Weekly. I am honored and grateful to be a part of this elite writing team. Our community is better because of this newspaper.  Thank you!

Happy Gardening and Happy Growing! Erin Go Bragh!

Share the Love By Cynthia Brian

2017-brian-banner-radio alone copy

A Message from Founder, Cynthia Brian
Although February is normally the wettest, coldest, most wintery month of our year, it is also a time to share the love. Here at Be the Star You Are!® we are gearing up for spring activities and seeking sponsors for our events.
 
We are very proud of the success and outreach of our two affirmative radio programs. Broadcasting LIVE since 1998, our upbeat, positive lifestyle radio program, StarStyle®-Be the Star You Are!® brings innovative information and inspiration to the masses every Wednesday from 4-5pm PT/7-8pm ET on the Voice America Network, Empowerment Channel.  
Liz Auilar
Our young adult radio broadcast, Express Yourself!~™, showcases the talents of tweens, teens, and young adults with fascinating guests and themes that are pertinent to millennials.  Listen to an original show Tuesdays at NOON PT.

We would love to showcase your company, service, or expertise on either of our shows through a sponsorship collaboration. Please email me for information Cynthia@BetheStarYouAre.org.

Together with the hosts and reporters on Express Yourself1™, we are excited to announce that we are working on our third book in the Be the Star You Are!® series., with a working title of Be the Star You Are!® for Millennials-How to Positively Express Yourself in the New Digital Age. Our book will be published by Waterside Productions sometime later this year.

In the meantime, you’ll want to pick up first edition autographed copies of our other books, Be the Star You Are!® 99 Gifts for Living, Loving, Laughing, and Learning to Make a Difference and Be the Star You Are!® for TEENS, Simple Gifts for Living Loving, Laughing, Learning, and Leading at our store. Case discounts available.
http://www.StarStyleRadio.com/store  All proceeds from sales benefit the programs of Be the Star You Are!®.

With the April 15 tax day nearing, remember you can still make tax deductible donations to Be the Star You Are!® I much prefer to donate to this charity where I know the money is making a difference to increase literacy and provide positive media and message entertainment than to give my extra dollars to Uncle Sam. Donate by check to PO Box 376, Moraga, Ca. 94556 or directly on-line through PAYPAL where 100% benefits the charity with no fees attached. https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/search-cause?charityId=1504&s=3

Stay warm, dry, and in touch with us. We send you gratitude and lots of love.

GREAT NON PROFITS REVIEWS 

An Update From Public Relations Intern Liz Aguilar
After New Years Day, I left for my next great adventure in Nicaragua – the land of lakes and volcanoes! I spent my January Term leading a service trip to a rural village called Zacataloza in the northern mountainous jungle. Our service team spent three weeks building a school for local children and learning more about their culture. As a reflections leader I was able to help my team reflect on their privilege, service, and desire to continue participating in civic engagement even after the trip. Overall, the experience was extremely rewarding, we finished building the school for Zacataloza, and we continued to explore different regions in the country. 

Now that I’m back at DePauw University finishing the remainder of my studies, I can’t help but reflect on how meaningful all of my experiences were abroad. I plan to continue working as an intern for student off campus study to try and help students pursue incredible opportunities that will help them grow. But for now – here’s some beautiful pictures of the last of my 10 month journey off-campus!

The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to just let it rain.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

alyysum-Trillium
Rain, rain, and more rain! With the many years of drought experienced in California, how grateful we are for the lucky tears falling from the sky. However, as much as we prayed for rain, the non-stop abundance has been more than our parched soils can accommodate resulting in flooding, landslides, and toppling trees.
snake plant-croton
We all need to assess our landscapes with an eye towards potential lurking troubles.  
Drains clogged with mud will cause flooding as I discovered on my patio. I dug out five gallons of mud from two drains located on the edge of my lawn and brick.  The good news was the mud was filled with worms, which I relocated to other parts of my garden. Make sure your French drains, sump pumps, and downspouts are clean and functional.  If you don’t have downspouts, a pretty and useful alternative is to install rain chains. Rain chains hang from the gutters allowing the water to trickle down the chain into a garden bed as opposed to just gushing from the gutter. The gentle tinkling sound is soothing and meditative.
periwinkle
The few days of sunshine we enjoyed have been a welcome respite helping us get repairs accomplished as well as finishing the final pruning of bushes and trees.  As I cut the canes from my rose bushes, I experimented with planting many of my favorites in other parts of my garden, dipping the ends in a rooting solution first.  I’ve done the same with my grapevines, pruning last year’s wood back to the second bud, then sticking a few of the cut canes into the soil along a wire fence.
Camellia close up
Daffodils and narcissci are peeking their pretty heads as they awake from their winter slumber.  What a marvel it is to see the sea of yellow on roadways, hillsides, and walking paths! Last month my home was filled with bouquets of fragrant roses. This month the sunny blooms of a variety of daffodils brighten my interiors. My Italian peach tree is budding with the expectation of an explosion of pink and crimson by St. Patrick’s Day. The croaks of the emerging frogs in the early evening remind me that the vernal equinox is rapidly approaching.  With excitement, I am beginning my preparations for a wildly opulent spring.

 

EXERCISE your body, mind, and soul by pulling weeds on your flat land. I suggest allowing the weeds to remain on any banks or hillsides to help protect against erosion as rains are anticipated throughout the month. A recent Netherlands study discovered that thirty minutes of gardening reduces the stress hormone cortisol. Dig in.
pin camellias on ground
SAVE money by planting vegetables and herbs that your family consumes regularly. What are your favorites? Broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, potatoes, beets, carrots, and greens can all be planted now.
oregon grape
PREPARE new planting areas with enriched soils mixed with the compost you’ve been making. You do have a compost pile, don’t you? It’s never too late to start one.
yellow narcissus
GROW flowers in a cutting garden that will both attract pollinators and be used for new weekly flower arrangements to brighten your indoor experience.  Coreopsis, Phlox, Salvia, Agastache, and Echinacea are always charmers.

FEED lawns this month with a high –nitrogen organic fertilizer as the winter rains have depleted the nutrients.  Pull the weeds and eat the dandelions as long as you have not used a toxic spray on them.

BORDER your Rhododendrons and Heather with purple or while Alyssum as a pretty perennial edging.

INSPECT oak trees for oak moth larvae. If you see attractive black and yellow caterpillars crawling on the bark, call an arborist or tree professional for an inspection.

ENHANCE your landscape with the attractive Oregon Grape as a deer resistant choice.

CREATE a bold foundation garden of shade plants with Lady Ferns, Bleeding Hearts, Hostas, and Coral Bells.

FRESHEN your indoor spaces with Crotons, Snake Plants, or Peace Lilies.
Rain Chains
ADD rain chains to your gutters in lieu of downspouts. Not only are they practical, many are artfully designed to beautify your architecture specifically in areas where downspouts would be an eyesore.

CHOOSE bulbs for your summer pleasure including Begonia, Dahlia, Gladiolus, Watsonia, and Calla Lily. Selections are available at your nursery and garden center.
EMBRACE a variety of grasses for your lawn to make it more drought and traffic tolerant.  Clover is not only pretty in a lawn but it automatically fertilizes the soil with nitrogen by grabbing it from the air.

IMITATE Mother Nature’s posture of chaos by losing a “perfection” approach to gardening.  Strive for biological beauty.  â€œFlower” equals “flow”.

CULTIVATE an attitude of gratitude to grow in grace.
woodpecker-acorns
BE on the alert again this month for woodpeckers storing their acorns in holes they punch in your wooden walls.
drain
GO native by adding Sage, Penstemon, Gazania, Red Hot Poker, and Columbine to your yard.

STAY warm and dry while it’s wet and wild! We appreciate the plentiful precipitation after years of drought drudgery.

EMAIL me for your spring consultation tune-up.

Let it rain! Let it rain! Let it rain!

Happy Gardening and Happy Growing!

Something to Crow About! By Cynthia Brian

“I raised chickens because I love that feeling of being in the country and living from the soil” Eartha Kitt

With 2017 being the Year of the Rooster, I am excited to share my gratitude to the poultry that graced my life.
chickens-daffodils.jpg - 2
Chanticleer may be the reason I am where I am today. When I was eight years old I announced to my parents that I wanted to be able to go to college.  Since my grandparents had barely finished sixth to eighth grades and my parents had high school diplomas, I would be the first person in my family to strive for a university degree.  It was decided that the only way this dream would be possible is if I financed it myself.  My brilliant idea was to raise chickens, sell the eggs, and enter competitions at fairs to earn the cash.  
rose arrangement
My first clutch of chickens yielded nine pullets and three cockerels.  My favorite rooster was Chanticleer, a beautiful Rhode Island Red, who followed me everywhere.  A great deal of time was spent with my brood of twelve as I began my farm fresh egg business through my membership in the 4-H Club.  When fair season rolled around, I entered Chanticleer and my hens in the appropriate categories including showmanship. Chanticleer and I won blue ribbons and were named Grand Champions in every competition at every event, including the California State Fair.  At fairs outside the county where I resided it was necessary to enter Chanticleer in “open division” meaning I wasn’t competing against other children or 4-Her’s but was competing with professional breeders and adult hobbyists. Chanticleer still won Grand Champion and soon I was being heralded as a “California Champion Rooster Raiser” and “The Chicken Lady”  (Of course when I was a teenager I wasn’t enamored with those titles, but today I cherish the honors.) Throughout my teens I raised hundreds of hens and several roosters, but Chanticleer remained the king of the roost, a media star, and a winning companion.
willow buds
Weeds and grass were fed to the barnyard animals as well as scraps from our table. The hens scratched, ate worms, and fertilized the yard. The manure from the chicken coop was shoveled into a pile to age for three years before it was mixed into the flowerbeds. (Chicken manure is “hot” and will burn your plants if it is not seasoned.) Everything was recycled in the perfect circle of organic living. Eggs were gathered twice a day and delivered to customers twice a week. I saved every penny and documented every expense.

Chanticleer lived a very long, happy life and I will always be grateful for his friendship, his beautiful stature, and his profitable deportment. By the time I was eighteen I had indeed earned enough dollars from my poultry project, farm labor jobs, and scholarships to pay my college tuition at both UCLA and CAL Berkeley.  And that is something to crow about!

Dream a Little! By Cynthia Brian

 


“Be at War with your Vices,
at Peace with your Neighbours,
& let every New-Year find you a better Man.”
Benjamin Franklin

jer,marcia,cy, brian-new years
Resolutions, goals, a fresh start. Does January bring out your best efforts in wishful thinking as you embark on a new year or do you have the stamina and mindfulness to actually fulfill your gardening dreams? The famous English gardener and writer, Vita Sackville-West, wrote: “The most noteworthy thing about gardeners is that they are always optimistic, always enterprising, and never satisfied. They always look forward to doing something better than they have ever done before.”  Although Vita died in 1962, her gardens at Sissinghurst survive as a national treasure, thriving with seasonal beauty and tender care from volunteers. I was fortunate enough to travel the grounds last year and marvel, even in the rain, at the expanse of her horticultural involvement. Vita’s quote definitely describes my personal gardening mantra as my motto has always been “Failure is fertilizer. Throw the mistake on the compost pile to grow a new garden.”  In other words, mistakes, or malfattis as we say in Italian are always an experiment in something new…and maybe even a better creation. I don’t rest on my bay laurels but keep on striving.
sissinghurst fall garden
One of my favorite global excursions is to visit gardens everywhere I travel. Exploring gardens, great and small, is a wonderful way to expand one’s horticultural intelligence while gathering ideas for one’s own plot. At the top of my resolution list for 2017 I’ve designated garden hopping as a must-do. In the past few weeks, I’ve had numerous emails from readers of this column with questions, comments, and aspirations as well as ambitious dreams for gardening in 2017.  Here are ideas you may wish to employ this year as you dig a little and dream a lot!
hydrangeas, roses
⎫ Get your children and grandchildren engaged in gardening activities. Virtues, skills, and life itself are learned in the garden.
⎫ Be brave. Experiment more. Worry less. There are no brown thumbs.
⎫ Plant more seeds to watch the wonder of sprouting.
⎫ Grow more vegetables and herbs in your pots or potager for a healthier plant to plate palate. Consume, share, preserve to eliminate waste.
⎫ Photograph your garden often and keep records of what blooms when, what works where, and what you want to edit.
⎫ Install a water-saving irrigation system.
⎫ Donate extra produce to a food bank.
⎫ When time is limited, hire help.
⎫ Compost, compost, compost. (see composting recipe below)
⎫ Visit botanical gardens wherever you travel.
⎫ Encourage pollinators to take up residence by planting and offering habitat that attract them. Birds, bees, bats, hummingbirds, and butterflies are precious protectors.
⎫ Eliminate insecticides and pesticides. Research companion planting.
⎫ Mulch more to reduce weeds, keep the soil warm or cool depending on the weather, and stop soil erosion.
⎫ Take a class to expand your knowledge.
⎫ Be more realistic.
⎫ Find interesting outdoor accents to use in the landscape like vintage windows, doors, or Victorian gazing balls.
⎫ Add one or more water elements.
⎫ Start saving special seeds.
⎫ Propagate from cuttings.
⎫ Plant a garden or pots in a patio for the first time.
⎫ Add a new rosebush.
⎫ Plant a cutting garden for creating beautiful bouquets year round.
⎫ Sow a path of fragrance with lavender, jasmine, honeysuckle, or other sweet-smelling shrubs.
⎫ Become more aware of the natural world by paying attention to the sounds, smells, and sights.
⎫ Make your garden drought tolerant with succulents.
⎫ Resolve to utilize organic gardening methods.
⎫ Begin keeping a journal of your outdoor endeavors.
⎫ Use tropical plants indoors as air purifiers as well as décor focal points.
⎫ Enjoy your garden more, slave less. Spend at least 15 minutes every day admiring your beautiful handiwork in conjunction with nature.

Since getting in shape or losing weight is the number one New Year’s resolution that is rarely kept, remember that gardening provides an excellent workout with the digging, tilling, weeding, raking, mowing, moving, planting, and climbing. Plus gardening is great fun.  My hope for you is that you will adopt one or more of these tips as your gardening promise for the year. Be enterprising. Do things better than you ever did before. Be optimistic. Be the STAR you are.

Cynthia Brian’s Garden Guidelines for January
⎫ Compost Recipe: Keep a bucket with a lid on it in the garage or other storage area to fill with your kitchen scraps, shredded newspaper, coffee grinds, tea bags, fish bones (no meat products), and egg shells. Dump daily in an outdoor bin or pile. Add leaves and other brown materials, grass and plant clippings, and garden waste. Keep moist. Turn often with a spade or pitchfork. When the material looks and feels like a damp chocolate cake mix with an aroma of the earth, spread in your beds.
⎫ With the flu and colds that seem to be ubiquitous, make sure to keep lots of citrus on hand, especially oranges and lemons which have a high concentration of vitamin C, citric acid, calcium, iron, fiber, and B complex vitamins. Squeeze lemon juice on salads, vegetables, meat, and, of course, in your water to keep you hydrated. Even cut flowers benefit from drops of lemon juice in the vase, helping the water to travel from the stems to the flowers. Scatter the peels on any acid loving plants in your garden including roses, azaleas, rhododendrons, and fuchsias as a natural fertilizer.
⎫ It’s time to do your heavy pruning on your roses. Cut out any dead wood. Prune roses to about knee height. Although many people assume that roses are fussy, they really are quite tolerant providing months of luscious blooms.
⎫ Buy and plant bare-root roses, berries, vines, and fruit trees now following the instructions on the packaging.
⎫ Spray an application of dormant spray on peaches and other fruit trees to kill overwintering insects.
⎫ Peruse catalogues for ideas for spring and summer flowers.
⎫ Make fragrant potpourri from cut flowers.

Happy Gardening and Happy Growing! Happy, Healthy, Auspicious New Year!
